is called both cooperative states and helping them with defensive weapons to guard against international terror or radical islam perpetuated by khamenei. because we have done that and because the saudi arabians have shot down a couple of the intruding airplanes we have helped keep the peace in the persian gulf. >> representative ferraro, you and mr. mondale have criticized the president on international terror. what would you do to reduce the attached? >> mr. bush has preferred to the embassy that was held in iran. i went to the white house in january in 1981 when all 52 of the hostages came home alive. at that time, president reagan gave a speech welcoming them home. we were so excited to see them back. but he said was, the united states has been embarrassed -- what he said was, the united states has been embarrassed for the last time. next time, there will be swift and immediate steps taken to address the wrong against our country. in april of 1983, i was in beirut and visited the ambassador at the embassy. two weeks later, the embassy was bombed. take a look at the crazy activities of
are the cases of the naacp legal and education defense fund that thurgood marshall is actually bringing and he is building at sort of brick by brick, block by block or go thurgood marshall not yet of course the justice of the supreme court. he is making the case that plessy versus ferguson and, which defined the acceptability of separate but equal, they are making the case to the naacp that this cannot be, cannot remain the law of the land and it is pretty clear that the case that is going to become a very important one for the court and it's actually a year that rehnquist is there is brown versus board of education. which turns out in fact to be the case that strikes that document down, very very important in a unanimous verdict, unanimous decision of the supreme court. so rehnquist, part of the role of a clerk is to offer his advice and opinions to his boss about these cases and so rehnquist writes a memo about brown versus board of education and he basically says that plessy should stand. rehnquist authors this memo and gives it to jackson. jackson doesn't -- i am sure jackson read the memo
to ten years while doing tax reform, while increasing defense spending, not touching medicare. i mean there's a lot of things that don't add up but because romney has not given the details doesn't give the president the right to make them up for him. i mean, he is not going to have a $5 trillion net tax cut. >> absolutely good at details -- >> that's not his plan. >> but i think to say there's a $5 trillion tax cut to be offset by mystery meat. you know, that's a correct statement. >> or -- >> there's a $5 trillion tax cut, well, but we don't know what it is he's going to do but what he proposed is a $5 trillion tax cut plus he says, trust me, i'll do something he different. that's not a very good -- >> yes. what can be more legitimate than saying you're proposing $5 trillion in a reduction in revenue. how are you going to pay for this, and he says i'm not going to tell you, i'll just let the congress do it. so you say, no, these are the things you have to get rid of. get rid of t child deduction or home mortgage deduction. >> and we're going to have -- he said it. you just don't list
has to give. you have to specify where the deductions are. you can't increase defense spending, extend the bush cuts, 20% on top of that, and just say, no, it's going to be ok, we'll grow our way into it. that does raise a fair amount of scrutiny. >> sure. i think that's legitimate. first of all, romney has said to the degree they can't get the loopholes closed in congress, he'll reduce the tax credit. that he'll stick to the principle that it will pay for itself. there's a general argument over whether you should count economic growth. simpson and bowles don't count economic growth. two harvard experts said higher growth. third, romney has an energy plan which expanding american oil and gas. the royalties alone are worth $750 billion a year to the federal government. fourth, look carefully at what romney said, that the true supply sides don't necessarily love but it's good politics. he said i will close enough deductions that wealthy americans will not get a net tax cut. now, that's a pretty clear description. >> let me just say this. standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is
